It’s been a long winter here in Canada. It’s been a long winter filled with depressing news from around the world and small joys in the little circle of my life. It’s been a long winter with many excuses to sit: on the couch watching Netflix, at my computer writing and working, and on the floor waiting for two little boys to come at me with running hugs.
But in the past week the sun has come back and with it my restless legs. So, in honour of spring, here’s a quick workout in case you find yourself with ten minutes to move … and in case you find yourself inundated with chocolate eggs one day soon.
1. Run up and down the stairs 10x (switch starting leg each time)
2. Downward dog to runner’s lunge 10x (switch legs each time)
1. 30 bent-over triceps extension
2. 1-minute plank (or whatever challenges you!)
